Hello and Welcome to SCCPP

SCCPP is owned and run by Dr Catherine Field. I am a Child Clinical Psychologist and have worked in the local NHS child and adolescent mental health service since qualifying in 2000.  SCCPP was set up in 2013, in response to the reduction in the provision of psychology services for children, adolescents and their families, within the NHS locally.

I work with children and young people from 0-16 years (or up to 18 years if they remain in full time education and live at home), and their families.  Appointments usually take place in the family home.

Due to my work commitments within the NHS, I am only able to offer appointments week days (Wednesdays and Fridays 9-3pm), and Saturday mornings.  I aim to reply to all new enquiries within 3 working days, and am available for telephone calls until 7.30pm week days, and 9-12.30pm Saturday mornings (usually by pre-arrangement, via e mail).

SCCPP is unable to take on new families at present. I anticipate having space for new families from June 2021.
SCCPP is continuing to offer sessions via Zoom during the lockdown for anyone who wants to access us.


"This is just a note to thank you for your perseverance and support over the last few months with our daughter. Many others have given up along the way and it has been a breath of fresh air to have someone on our side and digging a little deeper to get to a conclusion. We are positive about 2014 and feel we have a clear route forward."
